Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Grandfather, that I never met, left a challenge in a family tree booklet to update the Hills family in 30 years. He wrote that in 1951. My mother passed this along to me in the 1990s and she was also the Childs family reunion organizer, having the reunion at our farm every year. I have taken up my grandfather's challenge in early 2003 and haven't looked back.

My interests are the Childs, Hills, Snyder, McIllwee from New York and the Tate, Carter, Bealmer, Holman families from Missouri.

My commitment to Find A Grave is to pay it back. I use Find a Grave as a resource for my genealogy research and to pay back the people who have contributed, I do the same. I believe in the power of the picture so I will not post a marker without one.

Would you please change the birthplace from Macon, MO to St. Louis, St. Louis County, Mo for Sophie. I just realized only her younger twin sisters were born in Macon while the older children were born in St. Louis.

You can contact me at Thanks.
Jeanne Earl, granddaughter of Sophie

Barnes family
Hi, You have added several members of the Barnes family at Elmwood Cemetery in Mexico, MO.. I was taking some photo's and I found in the same plot a hard to read grave marker, it says son of A.C.
and N.B. Barnes, but can't figure out the name or death date, it looks like 187?. I added him to F.A.G. with out a first name or dates and linked him to his parents. I was hoping you might be related and would know his name, looks like it starts Ro!! The memorial number is M#120439423.
Would be glad to transfer...
Thank you,
Marty Campbell
Mexico, MO
